In the continuing discussion begun with Keith Olbermann’s latest Meltdown over government health care, commenter “Peachy” has been providing excellent commentary.
Probably the most enduring one-line dismissal of government health care is P.J. O’Rourke’s classic– “If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it’s free.”
Yesterday, Peachy, a veteran nurse, scored a similar hit on Obamacare’s notion that government should re-order 1/5 of the U.S economy to solve several small problems like insuring those with low incomes or pre-existing conditions:

“Only a fool burns down the entire house just to change out the lightbulbs”
